Comment on: UPDATE: Melancholia still in competition even as Cannes board declares von Trier 'persona non grata'
Lars Von Trier has always set himself up as the bad boy of Cannes. This is no different. I watched the press conference and I believe that he just got bored with the dumb questions - questions that should have been of a higher standard - and he decided to spice things up a bit with a few neatly tossed hand grenades. And it did the trick. If you were a journo and you were reviewing your transcripted notes from that press conference, what would you lead with? "Lars Von Trier says he's a Nazi." That's the only decent copy came out of that otherwise boring press conference. Give the guy a break Cannes Board, please.
